 Marvel, 3/1983  1st Appearance of Hobgoblin; Came with Tattooz
Angelo notes: A 9.6 CGC variant sold in August 2018 for $2,300. Many record-breaking prices in other grades (raw and graded). This has become the must have book for the serious C.P.V. collector and/or investor.
Paul notes: 75¢ variants of this issue did indeed come with Tattooz included; book is considered incomplete at CGC (green qualified label) if absent — read Jon’s note as well, regarding CGC’s treatment. A VF- Amazing Spider-Man #238 variant sold at PNJ Comics for $160.00 on 2/23/2018
Ben notes: Classic cover contender. Also refer to my prior note in this separate blog post »
Jon notes: This book is NOT incomplete without Tattooz. It was printed in a standard, old fashioned way, independent of the Tattooz inserted later just like Mark Jewelers ads from the 1970s were inserted. Should we call Incredible Hulk #181 without a Mark Jewelers insert incomplete? I believe this problem originates from the fact that the comic’s cover mentions Tattooz, as does the cover to Fantastic Four #252. Ideally, the Tattooz ARE absent due to the slow degradation of the contents that will eventually effect paper quality inside. Overstreet listings are confused, forced to respond to CGC’s nonsense. Once upon a time, I called Bob Overstreet and told him that the FF #252’s Tattooz were being used as Spidey #238’s Tattooz and that the cure was to list them as same value, which he agreed with and subsequently did so. Collectors aren’t sure what to believe and that’s how the CGC myth is perpetuated. At some point, although my original note remains in the guide about the switching of Tattooz between books, this was changed back to the original mistaken listing (including the explicit mistaken statement that NO Type 1A Canadian variants exist) with two values, with and without Tattooz. The FF #252s are listed in Overstreet #48(2018) at $8 with Tattooz and $6 without in NM-, and ASM #238 is listed at $160 with and $80 without in NM-, a discrepancy that highlights this dilemma, with Tattooz worth between $2 and $80 for the same item. As no copies of FF #252 Type 1A have ever been confirmed to have Tattooz, all copies submitted would automatically be delineated as CGC green label incomplete unless Tattooz were inserted, thereby CREATING a variant which is not valid, as home made variants do not a variant make. ALL CGC would have to do is say “no Tattooz” on the label and have a blue label, leaving it to the collector to decide on the relative importance of its inclusion. There is little if any difference between doubling down on the term “Canadian Edition” for Type 1As and insisting books without inserts are incomplete. The situation is ridiculous; it is a conceptual failure. Any real NM- or better copy will and should be taken seriously with or without the insert. Tattooz were inserted in Amazing Spider-Man #238 and Fantastic Four #252 and advertised on the covers; Captain America #279(3/83) and Star Wars #69(3/83) were given Tattooz without advertising on the covers. Because neither of the latter books are considered incomplete without the inserts and would receive CGC blue labels, it stands to reason that ASM #238 and FF #252 are not incomplete without Tattooz either, as the books are complete, having been printed in a standard way, independent of the Tattooz that were then inserted. The only difference is the ads on the covers, and those are irrelevant as they are part of the printing process of the book itself. NO copies of Type 1a FF #252s have EVER surfaced with a Tattooz insert and likely do not exist, as multiple dealers’ stock from that era has revealed, further evidence that the books ought to be considered complete without the Tattooz insert.

 DC, 3/1983  1st Appearance of Jason Todd; Killer Croc appearance (cameo); Cont. in Detective Comics 524
Angelo notes: A 9.8 CGC variant sold in early 2018 for $1,500.
Walter notes: This is becoming a signifigant key with lots of interest.
Ben notes: A 2% type 1A variant survivorship assumption against the 97,741 total circulation statement number would imply under 2,000 surviving variant copies; of those, the vast majority of survivors likely are in the 2.0 to 8.0 condition range. Near-Mint-range survivors are therefore quite scarce indeed, reflected in the very low CGC census count of variants.
Doug notes: Low Print = 97,741 Copies in Pub. Circ. Stmt; FIRST appearance of JASON TODD (Later becomes the RED HOOD); FIRST brief appearance of Waylon Jones aka KILLER CROC; (See Detective #523 for First cameo appearance; See Detective #524 for First FULL appearance);

Angelo notes: A CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,000 in July 2018.
Ben notes: We are including Marvel Graphic Novel in the guide this year due to popular demand, but readers should be aware that it does not fit the same mold as the newsstand-exclusive comic book variants that make up the rest of the guide. These Marvel Graphic Novel books are magazine-tier at CGC/CBCS, and beyond the size difference to regular comics the distribution differed as well, with these books distributed as graphic novels with just one version priced at $5.95 for Canada, as opposed to there being direct edition and newsstand versions.
